- The classic tour, not to be missed -
Our tour begins with driving through Reykjavik towards Þingvellir, a remarkable geological site and the most historic site on the island.
The world's oldest democratic parliament was founded here in 930. Þingvellir, located by Lake Þingvallavatn, the largest lake on the island; is now a national park and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2004.. The beautiful canyon running through the park is actually the meeting point of two of the earth’s tectonic plates. The area’s combination of natural phenomena and historical significance make it inseparable from the fabric of Icelandic national life.
We continue to the infamous Geysir area where we will discover the famous Geysir which has given its name to hot springs all over the world. You will see one of the most active geysers in the area, Strokkur, spouting up to 30 meters in the air, every 5 to 7 minutes!
Only a few minutes drive away is Gullfoss (Golden Waterfall), one of the most impressive waterfalls in Europe. Here you will see thousands of tons of icy water thunder majestically down into a deep gorge.
